This National Forum Insight examines the concept of ‘Agile Curriculum’, emerging in tandem with changing modes of engagement with higher education.

Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

The purpose of this Insight is to examine what is meant by Agile Curriculum and how we can work as a sector towards a shared understanding of this term. We propose that this Insight can help to inform further discussions of Agile Curriculum at local, sectoral and national levels.

In the denouement of the COVID-19 pandemic, talk of a return to “normalcy” in higher education belies the great challenges and ongoing disruptions that yet lie ahead for many institutions. Public perceptions of the value of postsecondary education continue their downward slide, placing institutions in the position of having to demonstrate their worth and find solutions to declining enrollments. Data and analytics capabilities continue to evolve, introducing new opportunities and new risks to the institution. Chief among these capabilities, generative AI promises to change teaching and learning in ways many of us have yet to fully understand or prepare for.

For this year’s teaching and learning Horizon Report, expert panelists’ discussions highlighted and wrestled with these present and looming challenges for higher education. This report summarizes the results of those discussions and serves as one vantage point on where our future may be headed.
